Modern Foreign Languages - French at OGPS

Bonjour!

Nous avons investi dans un professeur de français spécialisé qui travaille avec tous les enfants de l'école. En conséquence, le niveau de français compris, parlé et écrit par les enfants est élevé. Les enfants s'appuient sur leurs compétences chaque année afin qu'ils partent en 6e année avec beaucoup de confiance, prêt à exceller à l'école secondaire.

“Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures.” National Curriculum 2014.

We believe that learning a foreign language fosters the children’s curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world. It allows for children to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing.

Children from Years 1 to 6 are taught French weekly by a specialist languages teacher. The children learn French mostly through oral work, song, and fun interactive games that they play in pairs and small groups. Written work is produced to consolidate their learning. Children learn the common everyday language and key vocabulary used in France e.g. numbers, greetings and emotion words
